    Dakota KK120
    48 Squadron
    in South China Seas

    on regular flight between Singapore and Saigon. No trace, and weather may have been a factor. Watson was the pilot.

    12 killed including Brigadier J H Alms OBE (whose name is on Brookwood Memorial rather than Singapore)

    from Cummings' Final Landings
